Windows 7: Rename files, from Command line

Rename files, from Command line

Hello, I am trying to learn the command line, and in that regard have purchased, The Windows Command Line
Beginners Guide by Jonathan Moeller. This is an excellent resource, but I can't find anything about renaming
folders or files from the command line. I realize I can do do these tasks from the GUI, but I need real life examples to practice with, using the CLI.
A related question: Is it possible to rename user accounts from the CLI ? And in particular administrator accounts?
Perhaps someone could direct me to a link, thread or tutorial if the answer is too long to reply to here.
Thank you for looking.
